Type an em-dash on an iPhone

Typography and punctuation geeks rejoice! It's easy to type an em-dash on the iPhone's or iPod touch's virtual keyboard. To do so, tap the .?123 key to switch to the numeric keypad. Then touch and hold on the Hyphen key to reveal a pop-up strip showing an em-dash. Slide to the em-dash and release your finger.

Note that this basic trick works with many other keys on the virtual keyboard.

GoLive Update Offers Speed & Bug Fixes -- Adobe has released an update to GoLive 4.0, adding performance improvements and bug fixes to the powerful Web creation tool. GoLive 4.0.1, in addition to feeling speedier overall, fixes crashes caused by a font corruption problem with Mac OS 8.6 (see "Font Manager Update 1.0" in TidBITS-491) and fixes a crash associated with using GoLive's PDF module, among several other repairs. If you've previously run Apple's Font Manager Update on your copy of GoLive 4.0, we recommend reinstalling a fresh copy of GoLive before applying the 4.0.1 update to prevent crashing the updater. The 4.0.1 update is a hefty 10 MB download and is free for registered owners of GoLive 4.0. [JLC]
